Letter to Senator Patrick Leahy

Washington, DC 20510

Re: IMF Loan

Dear Senator Leahy,

We are very disappointed that you, Senator Leahy are acting in a very undemocratic manner to stop the IMF loan to Sri Lanka. It is very sad a man of your stature acting like a tin-pot dictator in the light of all the facts on the ground.

As you are aware Sri Lanka totally annihilated a Terrorist Group in Sri Lanka, without hardly any collateral damage to its own people, compared to our operations in Iraq and Afghanistan where we the Americans have killed literally hundreds of thousands of civilians in the name of fighting terrorists in other peoples land. Now Mr. Leahy, where are the inquires and structures against our own army and the government? Are we asking for an inquiry for war crimes against the US government!

Now, let me ask you what is your rationale for asking an inquiry against Sri Lanka? Obviously you are not aware over 5 billion of the free world voted for Sri Lanka against half a billion people from the old colonial counties against Sri Lanka for the same purpose and how come we joined the old colonial network.

Please stop this nonsense and work with the Sri Lankan government to usher a prosperous and united Sri Lanka.

Dr. C. Kumarlal Fernando
